Quantum Leap: What happens when we combine the humanities with STEM fields?

The Possibilities are Endless when we Bridge the Humanities with Science.

To celebrate this incredible legacy and discover opportunities for our future, Indiana Humanities wants you to take the leap with us for Quantum Leap. Together we’ll explore the spirit of possibility and problem-solving when we bridge the humanities with STEM.

Through grants, a new radio series, a statewide read of Frankenstein in 2018 and events such as field trips to places of scientific discovery or engineering marvels, we’ll learn more about how we question, tinker, invent and imagine—and what the consequences are for those innovations.
